  2. OK guys! I cant do this all on my own. If the usual bar doesn’t do it for you, there are these 65%+ cacao bars w/ various things added (salted caramel, raspberries, candied ginger) in the health food section of Kroger…very affordable and EXCELLENT! It really makes dark chocolate something special. Now get to it! we’re behind!

  3. Well, I have to admit that I haven’t been doing my part. As much as I love chocolate, I have to be very careful with it, because it gives me terrible insomnia. So if I’m going to eat chocolate, I have to have it for breakfast.

    • You are largely correct. I remember buying Belgium chocolate in Belgium, and it was a wonderful experience. We have a local confectioner who makes exceptional chocolate because he imports the main ingredients from Europe. It spoils me, because it is so much better than what I get over the counter. I almost never buy a Nestles candy bar anymore, which might explain why the Swiss-based company wants to sell off their American candy unit! 😉 Thanks for writing!

  4. Interestingly enough, government programs aren’t the key to this one either. Switzerland is staunchly capitalistic. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
